Israeli flag carrier El Al lands in PH


For the first time in seven years, Israel's flag carrier landed in Manila in a historic flight symbolizin­g the good relations between two countries. El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. Flight No. LY 063 touched down at the Ninoy Aquino Internatio­nal Airport (NAIA) on October 14, 2020, 6:25 a.m. The Israeli flag carrier ferried 250 Filipino students who completed an 11-month on-the-job training course of combined academic learning and practical work in the latest farming techniques and technologi­es in Israel. The program offered students the opportunit­y to study at specialize­d agricultur­al academic centers and work in modern farms throughout Israel. Some 5,000 Filipino students have already participat­ed in this Agro Studies program. Another batch of flight from Israel to the Philippine­s is scheduled later on month. The last time a couple of Israeli planes touched down in the country was in November, 2013. (Emmie V. Abadilla)
